Ambergate showed true character to get themselves into the DCFA Junior South Cup quarter final as Sam Hicking pounced in injury time to secure a fortunate 5-4 win over Melbourne.

The game started badly as Melbourne scored twice in the first five minutes.

Ambergate’s only hope was coming from the combination play between Richard Clark and Andy Stevenson as they carved out a number of opportunities.

Ambergate eventually got on the scoresheet through Craig Tipton (three), Richard Clark, and that late Hicking winner. See for a full report from the game.
